Item Description: Inst for Byzantine & Modern Greek, Belmont, Massachusetts, U.S.A., 2001. Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Preface: This volume begins as a continuation of Chapter III of Part Two of the first volume. There, I explained the festal icons of the Dodekaorton, namely, those of the Annunciation, the Nativity of Christ, the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, the Baptism, the Transfiguration, the Raising of Lazarus, the Entry into Jerusalem, the Crucifixion, the Resurrection, the Ascension, Pentecost, and the Dormition of the Theotokos. In this volume, we begin with a description and explanation of ten other icons of the Festal Cycle that are of special importance, being in various ways highly didactic and spiritually uplifting. The first of these are two icons which are related to the church services of the Holy and Great Week, in particular, the icon of The Holy Washing of the Disciples' Feet and the Mystical Supper. Then we proceed to the icon that depicts an event which is commemorated in the week that immediately follows the Holy and Great Week and is called in Greek Diakainesimos Hebdomas, and in English is variously spoken of as "New Week" (the closest approximation to the meaning of the Greek term), "Easter Week ," and "Bright Week." The event specially commemorated then is Christ Breaking the Bread at Emmaus, as a confirmation of His Resurrection. After that we deal with three icons that depict events which are celebrated on three successive Sundays after the Sunday of Thomas, during the period that precedes the Ascension and Pentecost. These icons depict two miracles of Christ that are specially emphasized by the Church: The Healing of the Paralytic and The Healing of the Blind Man, and also the significant event of Christ Conversing with the Samaritan Woman. The last mentioned icon serves to remind us of Christ's interest in persons who were not Jews and that faith in Him results in receiving the grace of the Holy Spirit, called "the water that springeth up into eternal life." I have added an Appendix in which I present some illuminating remarks which Saint Nektarios, Metropolitan of Pentapolis (better known as Saint Nectarios of Aegina), makes on the subject of "Types" in iconography. These I relate to pertinent observations on "Archetypes" made by Photios Kontoglou.
